Two of Prickshaw’s Medieval Charters

There are many medieval references to places that are in or around the area known today as Prickshaw.

Here are two charter transcripts from the Coucher Book of Whalley Abbey,
originally published by the Chetham Society.


In this charter we can see “Prikkeshaghsiche”
it would now be written Prickshaw Syke.



Lake Kor was probably the area now known as Prickshaw Dams.
